It's that time to prepare for another season to vote on rule changes, lakes and nominations for 2005 Metro LETS.
I am asking all teams to please email me directly with suggestions to be placed on the ballot.
[email protected]

For lakes, please remember the lake requirements are:
-decent size lake
-Good multi-species lakes
-Good access to hold 15+ rigs
-Weigh-in location

Please include in your email:

1.) Mystery event or mystery series (either one event or all events will be a mystery to ALL until the night before the event)
2.) Each team should give me 2 lake choices to put on the ballot.
3.) Rule changes, additions, etc..
4.) Nominations of league officers. President, Vice President, Weighmaster, Photographer and Treasurer.

Please email these to me rather that post publicly as it just turns into a debate. Thank you.

We did the St.Croix last year and it was a bit of a zoo with all the pleasure boaters... It is a great fishery though. 7-4 on a weekend wasn't the best though.

Dan, I fish the statewide LETS and I'm interested in the metro for next year possibly. How far out from the cities do your events travel? Lake Washington/Lake Stella in Wright County would be good lakes to try.

Hey Doug,
Washington is on the nomination list for next year, not Stella yet though. this year we had a 90 mile maximum distance for up to 2 of the 6 lakes, the rest within 60 miles. I was just planning to take all lake nominations at this point - there may be some restrictions on distance, not sure on that yet.

Hey, there he is... Mike was the one that nominated Washington... Didn't realize they are a chain...

Forget what I said.. Just looked at the map, this looks like it would be a good possibility...

how about Minnetonka? i would rather do it early in the year so as to avoid boat traffic. White Bear Lake? i have never fished it but heard it was a good lake. i am not real familiar with the metro lakes, so that is as much as i can come up with.

    • That is some great photography!
    • In late summer end of July and August when the water warms and the oxygen drops in the shallows. I have caught Eye's trolling deep diving raps, plugs behind dispy divers for suspended fish over 50-70 feet of water where the bait balls are. So, yes please don't follow us lost crazy people around out there! 🤪  😁
    • They call it 'No Man's Land' because nobody fishes it, unless they are lost, stupid or their locator is in simulation mode. That works for me because that's my comfort zone. Most people wouldn't believe the numbers of trophy fish I have caught in water that's over 50' deep. Recently I was out on a local lake trolling for walleyes in deep water with shallow and medium diving crankbaits, and I noticed 3 other boats that were avoiding the normal structure. Maybe their locators were broken or in demo mode, but for there to be 4 of us driving slowly around the open water, it seemed like more than a coincidence. I boated 4 eyes in 4 hours, with a smaller average size than I was hoping for. I am not looking for lakes, spots or secrets.... I am just curious if anybody else has noticed these 'fools' fishing water too deep for 'normal' fishing. Or maybe you have tried it a time or two, let me know what made you steer your boat away from the shoreline? Did it work out for you?  Is this style of fishing becoming more popular, or am I just paranoid?
    • Don't know yet if there are more.   
    • nope, they just like my bluebird houses! they got evicted again 2 nites ago!!!!!!!!! i learned a long time ago no millet. i only feed sunflower and safflower seed along with thistle!
    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
